Honey with warm water, a worst combination to start the day.

Drinking warm water and honey has become almost a fashion nowadays to reduce weight but according to ayurveda it is so harmful to drink warm water and honey together. Additives like lemon juice cinnamon powder etc will add on to the trouble. It is directly mentioned in our texts that honey with plain water in 1: 4 ratio helps to reduce body weight but with warm water it acts like a poison. It is been mentioned that Honey should never be taken with anything warm.Also there is a direct mentioning in Ashtanga Hridayam that we never consume honey after making it warm, after mixing it with hot substances and should not be consumed even in hot season from which we can understand that honey is so much contradictory to hotness. But nowadays we misunderstand honey as a healthy alternative for sugar and use in hot teas and even in cooking which are very bad.

Shakes that can shake our health.

Almost In every fruit juice shops, we have to specially request if we need a mango juice or pomegranate juice without milk.It has become a very common habit to mix milk to get the consistency. But ayurveda shastra explains that fruits should not be mixed with milk and very specially fruits which have sour taste should never be mixed with milk and Mango and Pomagranate are sour to taste as per books ( even if we perceive more sweetness than sourness ). Milk shakes are available nowadays with all kinds of fruits and we misunderstand that milk shakes are healthy thinking that fruits are healthy and milk is healthy but together they are very bad.

Healthy and Fleshy radish are not healthy.

When we buy Radish, the usual practice is to buy the big and fleshy ones but ayurveda shastra mentions that all the vegetables should be used only when properly matured except radish which has to used when it is tender. Ones that does not have a definite taste or slighty alkaline or bitter is easy to digest but a big sized radish which is pungent in taste is hard to digest and creates diseases and radish should never be taken raw.
